I'm not procrastinating today.  Honest.  Ok, maybe I am, but I'm being productive with it, and this bit of procrastination, should hopefully help me with my writing.  You see, what with the rebuild of doom last year, I've spent quite a lot of time, not thinking about my characters, and so now that I'm trying to get on with my story, I'm stumbling slightly at times when it comes to remembering how characters speak or act.  Now Emmi won't really appear in this chapter, but I've been thinking a lot about her look as a teen, and as an adult recently, and that has been helping me to re familiarise myself with her as a character.  Partly for my own reference, and partly because some of you might be interested, I thought I'd jot down my thoughts here.
Some waffle and pictures on Emmi )

To everyone I hope you are having or had a wonderful time this festive season, no matter where you are or what you celebrate.

Title:  More than that.
Prompt: Robert courting Emmi.  ([livejournal.com profile] penguingirl03)
Rating: U. 
Spoiler rating:  8/10. 
Summary:  Robert arrives to take Emmi to the theatre.
Notes: I've put quite a high spoiler rating on this, since a version of this scene will appear in a future chapter, and it also refers to some of the events in Emmi's tale, even if it is obliquely.  Also, you'll notice that there's no mention of a chaperone in this part of the scene.  Emmi wouldn't think of one, and Robert is from a place where they aren't common place.  As for the other person in the scene, well she hasn't had chance to insist on tagging along yet.
Word Count: 986.

Today, the tune she was playing was upbeat and bouncy, and he took that to be a good sign that she was looking forward to their date. )

Wow, it's a long time since I did one of these.  Aaanyway, in honour of Regalton 3.0 and the fact I now stage my chapters entirely based on my storylines and what has happened in game, I'm planning on posting more picspams, that are better ordered.  Obviously anything of a spoilery nature won't be shown.

Lots of pics follow the cut )

And I think that is where I will leave off part 1 of the main hood picspam.  Look out for more soon.

I’m not going to be sharing lots of pictures from the last rotation, or even doing them in the new look I was working on, for a couple of simple reasons. One, I played this rotation very quickly, and took hardly any pictures because I want to get on with the rebuild and two, thanks to that rebuild things look a bit odd in Regalton at the moment. As part of the rebuild, I’ve completed Project Refit and also went and removed all of Nouk’s original colours from my hair folder, meaning that with a few hairs for my blokes, all the hairs I have in game are now in the colours I use from Pooklet’s palette. I’ve also made various improvements on pieces of cc (such as rescaling Nani’s neighbourhood deco from MTS) since I last played the neighbourhood. This means that I’ve pulled quite a bit of my cc lately and, well things look a little strange.

60+ pictures under the cut )

Only a month or so later than I wanted, here's the next part of this rotation's picspam.  This covers three houses in Regalton proper, and I'm going in the order I want to, rather than the order of playing like I normally do.

60+ pictures and some blather )

So, today is quite a busy day if you think about it.  It's the day decided upon as Shakespeare's birthday, it's also his death day, St George's Day and the day the new series of Doctor Who starts on the BBC tonight (35 minutes, yay!).  But more than that, it's four years ago today that I created Regalton and started to play Gabe.

Goodies behind here. Well one goodie anyway. )
dicreasy2: (Eddie)
So, I have a list of things to do as long as my arm, and I don't really feel like doing any of them.  I'm thinking I'm going to have to take a leaf out of Widget's book and start making monthly to do lists, if only to guilt me into doing them and crossing things off.  I'm currently firing the game up to sort out Alfie, but I've not done any more filming since my CreeMo round up post, and have only played a couple houses.  I've also not finished the red damask wall set, or finished the rescaled teacups I've made.  Actually, there's not too much to do for those: all the meshes are made and the packages complete, I just need to slave them to the original meshes.  That won't take long, I just need to get my head round following the instructions, since no matter how many times I've done it, I always manage to mess something up on the first package I do.

Aaaanyway, enough of that.  I've been promising picspam for a while, so here we go.  This is the first part of the Regalton houses, and you'll notice that there's nothing from either John's house or the main house.  The reason is that I've not played them yet: I wanted to get the chapter written first, since I need to shoot some things with John and his family and I wasn't sure what age I need his child to be.  As for the main house, well the main house is always the last one I play in the rotation. 

Also, I should say that part way through this, I decided to change my rotation and synchronise all the seasons, and i started playing with lighting mods, so you'll see a few anomalies with lighting and seasons with these pictures.  For those who are interested, I've cut my rotation down from five days to three days, and one rotation equalling one year at uni.  Basically as I was starting to play this rotation I realised that over the past year, all of my ages had become hopelessly out of whack, and part of that was due to how I was playing the cousins at uni.  This way should make it much easier to keep everyone at the age they should be, and I'll check that against a spreadsheet I've set up.  That's the plan anyway.

But now, onto pictures.

lots of piccies this way )

First off, this is over here, rather than [livejournal.com profile] sim_spiration ,  because I went overboard as is normal for me at the moment, and ended up writing loads.

Secondly, a version of this scene will be appearing in chapter 24.2, so if you wish to remain un-spoiled, don't read it.  Everyone else, enjoy,

"Did I adequately answer your condescending question?" (The Social Network) )?”

So, I've finished shooting and playing for chapter 24.1.  I've got far too many pictures as always, but I've not felt like starting to put them in order yet/  I did think that I'd share a few random pictures with you all though, to whet your appetite as it were, for when I do get my act together.  :D

A few pictures. )

I have written far too much again.  And I really thought that this would be a small piece.

Anyway, here it is:

Happy New Year everyone!  I wish you all the best for the coming year.

I'm going to start the year by apologising for the fact that I owe quite a few comments over at Boolprop.  My only excuse is that I haven't felt much like commenting, even though I've loved what I've read.  I'm hoping that I'll start to feel more like it soon and get caught up.

What I have been doing is playing.  I'm only a few sim hours away from finishing the rotation in the main house.  After that I've got to play another house and shoot a couple of sims, and then I've got everything I need for the next chapter.  YAY.

Because I've been playing, I have a few things to share with you all.  Most excitingly is the fact that for the first time in about, oh 18 months, the main players of the generation are all teenagers.  I've already shared pics of Bethany and Christopher, but here are the rest.
Pictures for yooooou! )
